The Cambridge Record Office is situated in Shire Hall, on Castle hill in Cambridge. They have the largest collection of local records including census information, wills, maps, photographs, books, etc. Phone for an appointment before visiting though, especially if wishing to view a map. Cambridgeshire County Council is available online here, and the Archives department here.

Many of the historical documents on this site are to be found at the CRO. They have generously allowed me to display digital photographs of these documents on this site. Paper copies or (real paper) photographic copies of the documents can be obtained from the record office for a small fee.

Enquiries have been made to identify copyright owners. Some however have not been traceable, and if anybody wishes to have content removed due to an accidental breach of copyright then please contact me here
